The portion sizes are not worth the price. I'm biased, having grown up in a Filipino household, but the Filipino food is not good. I do like the fried chicken and the broccoli side. But again, you don't get a lot of food for what you pay.

Classic ?Americanized? Asian food. I had the chicken adobo bowl, which was more like orange chicken than traditional adobo. Sauce was overbearing in sweetness and amount, which is a shame because the flavor of the chicken and green beans was good by itself. My rice at the bottom of the bowl was soggy and drenched in the sauce as well. Some people like this style of Asian food. I prefer the authentic Filipino flavor and this just isn?t it for me personally.

Our family orders here about every other week! We love the lumpias and the achar sauce, and our 3 year old daughter loves the crispy chicken and broccoli. Easily one of our favorites and we love supporting local!

I am a Filipino and i will rate this from a Pinoy point of view. I find the menu a bit confusing. I ordered the Filipino chicken bowl. From the description shown in the menu, i was expecting chicken adobo with rice in a bowl but it looks and tastes like a grilled chicken to me. I was looking forward to that extra adobo seasoning but there wasn't. We also ordered the pork noodle bowl (sisig). This is confusing because when i read the title, its sisig but when served, it looks like lechon baboy with a glass noodle. Sisig is made of internal organs, ears, face, liver. It is not sisig at all. I ordered halo halo as our dessert, 1/5 of the bowl were the ingredients and the rest is crushed ice and 2 scoop of ice cream. I was looking for sweetened red/black bean, pipino, banana. (Halo halo is supposed to be colorful because of the combined ingredients). The sweetener was i think a pure sugar with ice cream. An original halo-halo sweetener is a combo of sugar, evaporated milk and ice cream combined with those sweetened ingredients. On a price of $6.99 i would expect for more ingredients and color. So anyways, over all the taste were not bad at all but it did not meet my expectation. The only Filipino taste present was from the lumpia and the sweet and sour sauce. Place was great. Service was good. I would love to give you a higher rating but the price i paid wasn't worth the food i ate. I read the below ratings made, i totally agree with them. It wasn't Filipino taste at all!

Me and my husband ordered Biriyani rice bowl with tandoori chicken and sweet potato fries, tandoori chicken tacos. Tacos are very yum. However, I am disappointed with the quantity. Rice bowl quantity was fulfilling. I loved the tandoori chicken. Its flavourful, soft and delicious. I didn?t liked biriyani rice much. I felt it lacked flavours and rice was bit overcooked. I am tasking turano for the first time. It is egg rolls with banana stuffing. I loved it. It reminded me of banana fritters that my mom used to prepare. We also ordered crush ice. It had crushed ice with ice cream and jelly. It is delicious.

Lola's is a gem of a restaurant! I love that they offer bowl suggestions and that you can also make your own if you like. If you're vegetarian or vegan they have options for you as well. They have spicier sauces you can add if you want your food hotter or you can keep it without any spicy. I got the crispy tofu bowl which was delicious! The tofu was perfectly crisp and had the perfect amount of sauce. I also tried their philipeno egg rolls which were perfectly crisp and flavorful. To end the meal on a sweet note get a halo halo. It's like a slushie meets ice cream and creaminess meets fruit goodness. I've never had anything like it before and I loved it! Another thing notable to mention is they partner with a compost company to compost all trash which is an awesome way to be a more eco friendly restaurant!

This is probably the best pakistanian restaurant in the area. Everything they have is amazing. Spicy food connoisseurs will love this place, but there are plenty of options for non-spicy food as well. Their bubble teas are very good, as well as their chai tea latte. If you're looking for a sweet treat, Lola's halo halo is the best shave ice you'll ever have! They also have a large selection of gluten free and dairy free options.

My firsts experience eating at lolas was a catering we had ordered for a small get together we had a little while ago. It was a huge hit! The lumpia was everyone?s favorite part but all around the whole meal was a 10/10. Even my picky eater of friend loved it. I will be back to eat at their restaurant and I recommend everyone try their catering at least once. Also the service was amazing they are so friendly.
